  4. 1984 was the kind of book you need to read at least ONCE before you die. Why once? Cause you might not like it, hehehe. We have some books in common in our TBR challenge list, and I also intend to reread Three Musketeers and Pride and Prejudice this year. Good luck! :)

  5. I really like Girl with a pearl earring and of course, P&P. I struggled with Three Musketeers though. Had it as a bookclub book a couple of years ago and I totally failed! Couldn't get through it. I managed to read Monte Cristo this year though so I'm seriously considering trying it again. Good Luck & Enjoy!
